TRENDnet TEW-633GR review

£120 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Trendnet

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

The TRENDnet TEW-633GR wireless router has very good overall performance and is simple to set up, but it lacks extra features (such as USB drive sharing or printer sharing) that we expect in this price class.

The TRENDnet TEW-633GR wireless router has very good overall performance and is simple to set up, but it lacks extra features (such as USB drive sharing or printer sharing) that we expect in this price class.

The TRENDnet TEW-633GR's performance was similar to that of the D-Link DIR-655 Xtreme N Gigabit Router, whose chipset it shares, with very good throughput overall, especially at short range.

The TRENDnet TEW-633GR's case can be mounted horizontally, vertically, or on a wall, so you have flexibility in positioning it for best reception.

Although the TRENDnet TEW-633GR is certainly a capable router, it lacks some useful extra features (such as a USB port and a guest access mode) that we looked for, and because of that it doesn't seem as good a value as some competing £100 models, such as the Belkin N+ Wireless Router F5D8235-4 and the D-Link DIR-655.

  • Overall: We give this item 8 of 10 overall

The TRENDnet TEW-633GR enjoys very good short-range throughput, has comprehensive features and web utility. But its long-range performance is below par, and there's no USB port for drive or printer sharing.

There are currently no price comparisons for this product.

    The D-Link DIR-655 is a top-performing router with useful extras like drive and printer sharing and a Wi-Fi guest zone.

    The TEW-631BRP might be a plain Jane, but it's nonetheless a well-specified device with some nice features.

  • Trendnet TEW-635BRM review

    Trendnet TEW-635BRM

    The Trendnet TEW-635BRM is a very small wireless router - more miniature even than Netgear's DGN2000 - and it also has a teeny price tag.

  • Trendnet TEW-611BRP

    Trendnet TEW-611BRP

    Wi-Fi is great for networking a house without having to drill through walls, but the reach of an 802.11g setup can drop drastically once you put some concrete between your PC and the router.

    The AVM FritzBox Fon 7270 is much more than just a featured-packed wireless router.
